Good choice for golf in the Raleigh area

Course layout is outstanding, and considering the time of year, course condition was excellent. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend.

First Time Playing

Beautiful track w true rolling greens

See title. Tuesday afternoon in February- sold us the tee time then messaged our cart that we were last ones / only ones playing and to hurry up and get back. I mean I guess I understand and we skipped holes to get back faster. Even though we had more daylight and weren’t advised to be back by certain time.

Other than that - great time and great service!

A pleasure...usually

Have played RR many times and almost always enjoy it. It is a well laid out track with speedy greens and challenging angles. The course stays in remarkably good shape even though it gets a lot of play. The clubhouse is spartan but adequate and the concession stand is similar. (A little slow sometimes) The practice area is typical for this type of course. One putting green, one chipping green and one sand trap. The driving range is sufficient to get warmed up before a round. My only complaint in the past has been pace of play. If you are not the first tee time, particularly in the busy season, there is always an chance you wind up in a log jam with a 4 1/2 or 5 hour round. There does not seem to be a ranger inclined to deal with this and if you call the clubhouse they have a tendency to be argumentative about the pace of play. Overall, still a great course and one of my favorites in the Raleigh area.

Sand traps

Overall, good condition for Jan. Could definitely use more sand in the bunkers. The several I visited had less than a 1/4 inch.
Greens great as usual, not breaking as much as we were used to.
